Rather amazingly, Avengers: Endgame just set another box office record. It’s something of a record by default, but a record nonetheless. The massive Marvel Cinematic Universe hit has officially crossed the $2.8 billion mark at the global box office, making it the first movie in history to do so. Granted, it was already the highest-grossing movie ever, so it was a given that no other movie had hit that mark. But it puts a little more distance between Avengers: Endgame and any other movie that may have its sights set on the record in the future. Like Avatar, for example.
But how is it possible that a movie that has been out of theaters for months managed to set a new box office record? Well, according to a new report, some unreported box office dollars were recently discovered from China, to the tune of $3 million. That puts Avengers: Endgame at $2.8008 billion globally. That includes $853.3 million domestically and $1.94 billion from international markets
James Cameron’s massive 2009 sci-fi hit Avatar had held the all-time global box office record for nearly a decade with $2.74 billion. At the time, that number was truly unfathomable, as even crossing the $1 billion mark was far less common. It seemed, especially after Star Wars: The Force Awakens failed to get anywhere near that total, that Avatar may hold the record forever. Yet, Avengers: Endgame, which served as the culmination of an entire decade of MCU storytelling, managed to generate enough global interest to get the job done.
